Corgarff - Gordon District
UKNIWM Ref No. 8568

The Corgarff war memorial takes the form of a large rustic grey granite cairn set on two low granite steps. The commemoration and names of the dead are listed on tablets set into the face of the cairn.
The monument stands outwith the kirkyard half-way between the Hall and the Kirk.
